Nancy Rickenbacher Retires as Leader of Junior Fair Board

After a 36 year legacy, Nancy Rickenbacher has retired from her post of leading the Hardin County Junior Fair Board.

“It’s time,” said Rickenbacher at the fair board meeting on Wednesday.

Her husband Paul was elected to the board in 1980 and a few years later, Rickenbacher took on the challenge of developing the Junior Fair Board Program in the county.

“It was a challenge, but it was a challenge I wanted,” Rickenbacher said. “I always liked working with young people.

Rickenbacher has worked countless youth in her nearly four decades across generations.

“I’ve now had the kids of former Junior Fair Board members in the program now,” she laughed.

Sherri Beale has been named her successor.
